Yesterday I spent the morning shopping in a vintage street market. There was also a bakery stall with lots of homemade delicious cakes. They were quite pricey but I guess that's the way it goes when you want nice cakes under the sun by the sea while shopping around. The market was brilliant, I bought a clutch, a doctor bag, a street fashion memo card game and a book.

Vegan pancakes time!

Yesterday I was waiting for my friend Irene to come to my apartment to have a tea. I had a big bowl of mixed berries so I decided to make pancakes. I checked the cupboards for ingredients and found all I needed but eggs so I decided to make them vegan. After a Google search I got this amazing recipe. They were ready in 5 mins and tasted delicious!

Animated days

I am ready for an anime-cartoon marathon tomorrow on my own. The plan is to watch films and clean the apartment, and maybe make some cupcakes. So I have put together a list of films: Monster House, Up, Coraline, Ice Age, Madagascar, Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, Chicken Little, Ant Bully, Cars, Ponyo, Scooby-Doo and the Loch Ness Monster, Howl's Moving Castle... Any suggestions are welcome today.

I wanted to find some 80s movies, like the Care Bears ones, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite, She-ra... But no luck, so I will use this chance to improve my cultural knowledge about "modern day" animation films. But you just have to have a look, in the cuteness battle the 80s win:

I am currently downloading The Biggest Loser 4th US season, but it might not be complete for the next 24 hours.

I am an air sign

I bought a new laptop yesterday.The chosen one was the 11" MacBook Air. I am so in love with it right now. The black backlit keyboard is really amazing. And the whole Mac is really thin and light, it makes my old MacBook look huge! I could keep writing about it for hours so I better stop now.

Macarons and ketchup?

I have been searching and comparing different macarons recipes online. This David Lebovitz post is pure eye candy! And what do you think of these pink ketchup ones? I think I rather stick to the classics. These on the picture are from a macaron shop in Barcelona, its name? Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette.

New York, New York

I am travelling to New York in November. I bought the Moleskine City and currently I am making a huge list of shops and places to visit. Here are some interesting NY related stuff I have found while surfing online. Just click the images to go to the shops.

This lovely book is a LEGO homage to New York City: "An imaginative look at life in New York City constructed entirely out of LEGOs ".


Rubber stamps of the most iconic buildings of the city. Who doesn't love stamps?


NYC-themed cupcake kit. You can bake 24 cupcakes and decorate them with the assorted toppers. I guess the toppers can be reused time and again.


All you need to experience Manhattan "in its entire specialty-shopping glory". This will be one of the first things I will buy there. And then: let the shopping begin!

Yesterday I saw Confessions. A really amazing movie about a teacher and her pupils. Don't let the school theme fool you, it is a "horror" movie. But a really unusual one. You won't see ghosts, blood baths or any kind of sci-fi monster. Its greatness lays on its simplicity: everyday's little horrors of life. I am trying not to let go much about the plot, it's something for the viewer to unfold. It might not be on cinemas everywhere, but it's quite easy to find it online. Give it a go, you won't regret!
